Havana, Aug 10.- The president of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, today condemned the obsession of the United States to destroy the Revolution.
New millions for old infamies, the perverse obsession to destroy the Revolution, Díaz-Canel wrote on his Twitter account when commenting on the decision of the White House to allocate up to three million dollars to denounce the alleged labor and sexual exploitation in Cuba.
In contrast, the Cuban president recalled that his government implemented more than 20 measures in labor, salary and social security matters to protect citizens.
The maneuver, a new aberration of the war against the island, is part of the strategy followed by the Donald Trump administration to distract attention, for electoral purposes, from its mismanagement in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, said a columnist in the Granma newspaper and shared by the head of state.
Official data collected by the World Health Organization (WHO) account for more than five million infected in the northern country and about 160 deaths.
Next, the text recalled the guarantees of equality and respect for dignity in the Caribbean nation, included in the Constitution and other laws in comparison with studies that place half a million people subjected to modern slavery in the United States.
"The United States government slanders us, as a pretext to tighten the blockade against Cuba and desperately seek the support of the Miami mafia, for electoral purposes," he added in the article on the newspaper's front page. (Text and photo: PL)
